Goodwill shopping

February 2nd, 2012 at 05:15 pm

I went to Goodwill last night for my regular senior citizen discount shopping. I bought only 3 things, but they were good.

I found a cashmere scarf from J. Crew, tag still on, in my DIL's favorite color -- orange!

A brand-new package of Madagascar penguins.

A like-new book that I had already recommended to my son.

The first two will go in the Christmas stash; the book I will just give to my son.

The total cost was $4. Woo-hoo!

My Comcast payment was taken out -- it is $42, a nice savings over $85.

My subscription to is up for renewal. I haven't used it much lately, but I've been meaning to. I still have a lot of work to do on the family tree. Meanwhile, I DO use it at work, so I will renew. It will be another thing I can put on my new Citi card.

I'm really enjoying my new seat belt. What a nice feeling -- to just snap it together and go!

    You are the best Goodwill shopper. Do you go to more than one? I think I need a new one--

  2. CB in the City Says:

    No, I always go to the same one. I admit, it is a good one -- one of the wealthier Chicago suburbs.

  3. My English Castle Says:

    There are two around here--and indeed the one in the funkier neighborhood is lousy. Your finds inspire me to investigate others!

    How much did the seat belt end up costing you since they kept screwing up the part?

  5. CB in the City Says:

    It was only $25. Would have been $125!

  6. LuckyRobin Says:

    Wow, $100 saved is worth the inconvience in my book!

    Glad the seatbelt fiasco is behind you!

    Great bargains...we don't have a Goodwill in our town.
